your economic future. congress voted to suspend the debt ceiling for three months and figure out deeper cuts to reduce the deficit. that keeps me employed for a few more months. but even before that deadline hits, again, march 1st will be on us. the so-called sequester deadline. that's a stupid washington name for a stupid and dangerous washington creation. the automatic across the board spending cuts. and then there's another date to worry about, april 15th. not just tax filing day, but the date by which congress has promised to adopt a budget resolution. they've even this time staked their pay on it, agreeing to reach a deal or face suspension of their paychecks until they reach a deal. that might just be enough of a carrot to present a budget that takes on our ballooning deficit. but the battle over that deficit make that recent battle over tax hikes for the rich seem like a friendly game of badminton. big spending cuts are needed and they will hit americans where it hurts. health care, medicare, social security. president obama emboldened by his re-election has already drawn
